Real Estate Questions:

Q: Why should I purchase an Owner’s Title Insurance Policy?

A: To protect the most important investment you will ever make, the investment in your home. With a title insurance policy, you as owner, have an indemnity contract that will reimburse you for loss in the event someone asserts a claim against your property that is covered by the policy. For a one-time premium, an owner’s title insurance policy remains in effect as long as you, or your heirs, retain an interest in the property. There are no annual premiums to keep your Owner’s Title Insurance policy in force.
